    Here is another line which if you look at vote chess it has been played more than 4000 times. And to top it off the correct continuations have almost never been given.

    I would say that most players have no idea what they are doing when they play the St. George defense which has some very deep strategic ideas.

    You see 3...Bg4 in the philidor from 1800 players?  I need to play chess in your area, I'd be rated 2200 in no time...

    Oh, not 1800 OTB, but 1800s on chess.com seem to play it quite frequently against me.
